Alan has been spending most of his time turning the first two bays of the garage into his shop (when its not 2 degrees outside!) The roof joist framing is complete. There was some totally inadequate framing there before. Some of the roof joists were pieces of siding!
The shared wall between the house and the garage is covered in roofing paper. When Alan began removing some of it he found a ton of stink bugs, alive and dead. This may explain why the one bedroom upstairs, which also shares this wall, has more stink bugs than anywhere in the house. Hopefully; if we tear out all the roofing paper, we will make a dent in the stink bug population.
We also bought new lights for the front of the garage. The old one was just a utilitarian socket with absolutely no decorative value.
Its dusk now and the lights are very pretty!
